03 January 2010

We had a pretty good 2009. We're happy, mostly healthy, love each other as much as ever, and have the gospel, but I think we're just fine saying goodbye to 2009. Here are some of our highlights and happenings of the year:
  • Red Rock Relay – 173 mile run with a team of twelve! The hardest thing we have physically ever done, and we are so proud of the accomplishment! Our knees are still recovering…
  • Minneapolis Trip - the National American Planning Association Conference. Steve went to a Minnesota Twins game, the Mall of America (which has an indoor amusement park with roller coasters and all), and touched the Mississippi River.
  • 1st Mumford Family Reunion – Sun Valley Idaho (Bike Ride through Sun Valley all together taking turns on the Tandem and pulling the kids in a bike trailer, Countless board and card games, A trip to Red Fish Lake, Craters of the Moon, and Everyone getting violently ill.

Josie’s Gymnastics classes

    Josie in Preschool – she can’t stop doing her homework, she loves it!

  • Car wrecked – bought a new used second car. We now own two Nissan Altimas

  • Thanksgiving with almost all of the Krohns

  • Living Planet Aquarium, Toadally Frogs Exhibit, Museum of Ancient Life (the Dinosaur Museum), The Bean Museum
  • Housing Candi’s sister for several months and then a soon-to-be sister-in-law for another couple.
  • Second ever camping trip with the kids. They were too excited to sleep
  • Two 5K races – One we ran together

  • Candi’s first ever Triathlon in Pleasant Grove!
  • Halloween – Steve & Jackson were Pirates, Candi & Josie were Rainbow Princess Fairies / Guitar Hero Rocker Fairy (Candi).

Thanksgiving Point, Hee Haw's, and other Fall fun.

  • First ride on FrontRunner & more trips on Trax
  • Steve swallowed a camera…literally
  • Grandma took the kids on the Polar Express
  • Lights at Temple Square
  • Moving Candi’s parents from Seattle to Provo. Now our kids have all their grandparents within about 35 miles
  • Got a kitten – Swiper the Fox

  • Candi wrote a song for her brother Nik to sing at his wedding. It was performed wonderfully by her and her brother sang awesome! Definitely a highlight.
  • Remodeling the house – we added beadboard (the individual boards), chair rail, baseboards, painted, etc.
  • Candi won a Biggest Loser competition put on by her friends
  • Jackson insists that getting his first ever train set was the best thing that happened to him this year.
  • Our kids are growing up and are just as cute and wonderful as ever!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Wow an awesome year. I love your short hair. How was the triathlon? I think I might want to try an easy one. We need to get together some time.
